An Iraqi bulldozer driver working with the Iraqi forces fighting ISIS in Mosul used his vehicle to block off an ISIS suicide bomber, thus saving the lives of his comrades.
The heroic act, which was filmed by a camera placed in the driver’s cabin, occurred in the western parts of the ISIS stronghold, where fierce battles are currently being fought in bid to oust the terror group from its bastion.
The driver chose to block off the road to prevent the VBIED from infiltrating into the Iraqi troops. Moments after the suicide bomber was stopped, the VBIED exploded. The driver survived the blast and sustained minor injuries.
The self-proclaimed Islamic State is steadily losing ground as the Iraqi coalition recaptures more districts and neighborhoods in the northern city.
Concerns remain as the terror group continues to use thousands of civilians as human shields to curb the advance of Iraqi forces.
